    An early report by a blogger shows Gmail having themes. Here's the link: http://beuno.com.ar/archives/97

    I just checked my account and don't see it yet. Gmail often does slow roll outs of new features across their data centers. Hopefully I will see it within the next couple of days.

    I do not have Google Gmail Themes available yet either.

    If you want to check your account for this feature:

    • First, click Settings
    • Check to see if you have a Themes tab

    If you have any questions about Gmail please post them in our E-Mail Service Provider Support Forums.​

    I prefer the classic theme.

    If I need to pick a favorite new theme I like the Steel theme too.

    Are themes linked to machines/IP's somehow?

    At home, on a laptop, my gmail settings page has a themes tab, and themes work fine.

    At work, on a desktop system, logging into the same gmail account, there is no themes tab on the settings page.

    I thought themes were enabled on account basis.....

    Nevermind... just found my answer; it's browser dependent:

    Gmail Themes aren't yet compatible with all of our supported browsers. Themes are only available in Internet Explorer 7.0+, Firefox 2.0+ or Safari 3.0+, and Google Chrome. You won't see a 'Themes' tab in your Settings if you're not using the newer version of Gmail on the browsers listed above. Please note that Themes are not available if you're using Internet Explorer 6.0
